Take care of your body. Protect it and develop it
so that it will serve you well for an entire lifetime --
that means eating nutritious foods and being active to

defend the rights of all people. Your relationships with
others should be honest and open. Be clean in your
speech and actions, and faithful in your religious
beliefs. The values you follow as a Scout will help you
become virtuous and self-reliant.
